12.1 Not Your Typical IPO: Developing Trends in Public Offerings

Today's crop of companies aspiring to a public listing aren't following the same old playbook for IPOs. With the upswing in direct listings and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) there is a clear shift in the balance of power, resulting in creative and new approaches to equity compensation treatment in a public listing. Join this panel to learn about these new trends and how these companies get to, through, and beyond IPO. Included in this discussion are how the different types of IPOs―traditional, direct, and SPAC―compare and contrast. The panel will also address the benefits different IPOs can deliver to both employees and employers, as well as what two recent alternative IPOs wish they had known before the process started. Attend this session and be prepared for your potential IPO!
